Black Holes and the Event Horizon Telescope

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will use hands on activities from the Perimeter Institute to explore the Event Horizon Telescope, a new telescope that is aiming to image the event horizon of the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.

These materials can be used in physics 20/30 classes, they could be used (with some adaption they could be used in Science 9 or some math courses).
